Netflix Greenlights Second German Series ‘DOGS OF BERLIN’

April 28, 2017


Netflix has announced that they’ve green light a second German original series, DOGS OF BERLIN. 

The first season will consist of 10-episodes and is created by Christian Alvert, to launch in 2018 on the streaming site. Later this year, the streaming site is also set to air German-language supernatural family series Dark.

DOGS OF BERLIN tells the story of two contrasting Berlin police detectives who become a team against their will and are forced into a territorial battle with the Berlin underworld that confronts them with their own human weaknesses and criminal activities. They are soon forced to make a final decision on which side of the law they’re actually on.

Alvert will write and direct the series and will also serve as show runner. He said of the announcement:

“To develop a 10-episode show that combined innovative storytelling with complex and unique characters is very exciting for me as an author and director. I wanted to tell the story of these DOGS for quite some time and am very much looking forward to finally bringing them to life together with Netflix’s creative team.”

Erik Barmack, Netflix’s VP of International Originals said:

“DOGS OF BERLIN tells a compelling and modern German story that dives into the Berlin underworld. Christian Alvart is a great storyteller and a director who knows how to create spectacular and gripping entertainment. We are thrilled that he will realize our second Netflix original that will be completely written, produced and shot in Germany.”
